Subject: [OMPI users] OMPI 1.6.3, InfiniBand and MTL MXM; unable to make it work!
From: Francesco Simula (francesco.simula_at_[hidden])
Date: 2013-01-17 09:09:06

I tried building from OMPI 1.6.3 tarball with the following
--prefix=/apotto/home1/homedirs/fsimula/Lavoro/openmpi-1.6.3/install/ \
--disable-mpi-io \
--disable-io-romio \
--enable-dependency-tracking \
--without-slurm \
--with-platform=optimized \
--disable-mpi-f77 \
--disable-mpi-f90 \
--with-openib \
--disable-static \
--enable-shared \
--disable-vt \
--enable-pty-support \
--enable-mca-no-build=btl-ofud,pml-bfo \
--with-mxm=/opt/mellanox/mxm \

As you can see from the last two lines, I want to enable the MXM
transport layer on a cluster made of SuperMicro X8DTG-D boards with dual
Xeons and Mellanox MT26428 HCAs; the OS is CentOS 5.8.

I tried with two different .rpm's for MXM, either
'mxm-1.1.ad085ef-1.x86_64-centos5u7.rpm' taken from here:

and 'mxm-1.5.f583875-1.x86_64-centos5u7.rpm' taken from here:

With both, even if the compilation concludes successfully, a simple
test (osu_bw from the OSU Micro-Benchmarks 3.8) fails with the sort of
message reported below; the lines:

rdma_dev.c:122 MXM DEBUG Port 1 on mlx4_0 has a link layer different
from IB. Skipping it
rdma_dev.c:155 MXM ERROR An active IB port on a Mellanox device, with
lid [any] gid [any] not found

make it seem like it cannot access the HW for the HCA: is that so? The
very same test works when using '-mca pml ob1' (thus using the openib

I'm quite ready to start pulling my hair; any suggestions?

The output of /usr/bin/ibv_devinfo for the two cluster nodes follows:

This means that there are no components of this type installed on your
system or all the components reported that they could not be used.

This is a fatal error; your MPI process is likely to abort. Check the
output of the "ompi_info" command and ensure that components of this
type are available on your system. You may also wish to check the
value of the "component_path" MCA parameter and ensure that it has at
least one directory that contains valid MCA components.
[agape5:08596] PML cm cannot be selected
mpirun has exited due to process rank 1 with PID 8596 on
node agape5 exiting improperly. There are two reasons this could occur:

1. this process did not call "init" before exiting, but others in
the job did. This can cause a job to hang indefinitely while it waits
for all processes to call "init". By rule, if one process calls "init",
then ALL processes must call "init" prior to termination.

2. this process called "init", but exited without calling "finalize".
By rule, all processes that call "init" MUST call "finalize" prior to
exiting or it will be considered an "abnormal termination"

This may have caused other processes in the application to be
terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here).
